[texts]Conceived Limits for Manipulated Reproduction - Inger Bierschenk
This article is focusing on the notion that the design of a civilization is perceivable to its citizens only to the degree that they have the cognitive instruments to judge it properly. With the purpose to clarify how two Swedish female adolescents comprehend the information structure of a utopian society, their written responses to Huxley’s Brave New World are studied. The method used for the analysis is Perspective Text Analysis (PTA/Vertex), which is founded on the Agent-action-Objective (A...

[texts]Myten om kunskapshungern - Inger Bierschenk
This article is a discussion of the possibility of changing the view of knowledge producing activities toward a competence directed education. After presentation of the traditional behaviouristic model and its consequences when applied on teaching, a new concept of competence is suggested, which differs from the concept of qualification. An important part of the article deals with the evaluation as an idea and a method for quality control...

[texts]Die ֖kologie des Sprachraums - Bernhard Bierschenk, Inger Bierschenk & Helge Helmersson
The dominating property of the present report concerns an approach, which is exclusively based on discontinuities as the reliable observations. In what way the presentation is designed and the main assumptions are formulated is described within an ecological context. Furthermore, a system of computer programs constitutes the background for reflection. A perspective, oriented on the environment, is extricated through effective evolutionary processes, bifurcation, and loss of stability...

[texts]The Manifestation of Symmetry between the Emergence of Consciousness and the Development of Competence - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk
The article presents an experiment in which students, classified according to high and low analytical performance, were given a reading and text production test to determine their sensibility to the structure of an Icelandic saga. This material was used because of its extreme simplicity on the textual surface level, a property suited for studying structure as something beyond the surface. The hypothesis tested is whether the structure mediated through the produced texts pertains to a descriptive...

[texts]An Excursion into the Ecological Coordinates of Language Space - Inger Bierschenk
This article should be regarded as a position paper, which outlines an ecological theory of language. The paper makes the analogy between the physical and mental growth of a human being and the rhythmic movement of writing and textual development. Thus text building is conceived of as a process developing into a structural whole. This process is inherent in the language mechanism. The paper describes the way this mechanism operates to form a structural whole out of the natural distortions in the...

[texts]An ecological model for the processing of symbolic information - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article attempts to prove that an adequate cognition oriented approach to the processing of symbolic information abstracted from verbal expressions must consider a running text instead of scattered sentences. It is argued that the dominant cognition models do not give due consideration to the fact that a valid abstraction of in-formation structures has to be based on an explicit encoding of intentionality and valuation...

[texts]Degrees of Consciousness in the Communication of Action and Events on the Visual Cliff - Bernhard Bierschenk
This article has its focus on the consciousness of dizygotic twins in their communication of actions and events as perceived on the visual cliff In the process of communication many different state spaces are generated. From a methodological point of view, it is demonstrated that the ecological and biophysical properties of language produce unique morphological profiles. Based on experimental data, collected from a male and a female pair, kinetic and kinematic invariants have been extracted...

[texts]The Fundamentals of Perspective Text Analysis (Original Edition). - Bernhard Bierschenk
The major assumption made is that language as a natural system is both self-organising and self-referential. Compared to common syntactic-semantic approaches, the present approach is ecological and builds on the unambiguous identification of textual agents and agencies together with their objectives. Because information transaction cannot be studied without an emphasis on the text producerâs text building behaviour, his intended and oriented schematising as unitising activity has been focused u...

[texts]Concept Formulation: Part III. Analysis of Mentality - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk
This is the third article of a series of three about concept formulation. It presents an analysis of the mentality of a free and unrestricted interview. The article starts with an illustration of the way in which an algorithmic analysis of natural language production has been carried out. Especially the functioning of the algorithm in differentiating objectives from the perspective is emphasised. By means of the agent function, meaningful conceptual relations can be unambiguously and automatical...

[texts]An Experimental Approach to the Functional Analysis of Text Building Behaviour: Part I. The Verbal Flow - Bernhard Bierschenk
This presentation is based on a method for analysing the verbal flow in text building behaviour. This method is called Perspective Text Analysis (PTA). It locates and makes use of the discontinuities in produced text. Its task is to characterise the mechanism that governs language production and to foster an understanding of the actual processes of movement in language. The study of this phenomenon is founded on the experimental conditions provided by the famous Visual Cliff...

[texts]Cycles and Oscillations in Text Processing - Bernhard Bierschenk
The classical research operations in the cognitive sciences concern categorisations as well as classifications, which strongly have been influenced by nomological approaches. As a consequence, information processing has been explained with reference to syntactic-semantic models. Because of an absence of structural implications, personal interpretations have had great impact on the presentation of results of relevance to the cognitive sciences...

[texts]Steering mechanisms for knowability - Bernhard Bierschenk
The foundations of knowledge by tradition have been treated analytically and knowledge has been characterized as a theoretical subject. This article introduces a steering mechanism as the prerequisite for a study of knowledge work and mainte-nance on empirical grounds. Knowledge is treated synthetically, that is, as something that exists only through the individualâs cooperation with its environment, which implies that criteria can be formulated for the isolation of knowledge processes...

The present work is based on the Kantian (AaO)-axiom and conceptualised as a textbook. As scientific method in the true sense of the notion science, the Vertex version of Perspective Text Analysis (PTA) represents a completely new approach to text-based studies. The inter-lingual character of Vertex has been tested and established in the context of six different languages, four belonging to the German family and two to the Roman family...

[texts]Concept Formulation: Part I. The Phenomenon of Cognition - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk
A common way of looking at cognition builds on the generation and representation of knowledge based on syntactic models. Above all, in connection with computer applications, it is proposed that the syntactic models are of significance for research on language and cognition. In the representation of a cognitive phenomenon, language plays the central role. Therefore, a contrasting discussion of the basic assumptions of both syntactic and paradigmatic models is the starting point of a method develo...

[texts]The Sensing of Competence: Architecture and Functioning of a Plotting Device - Bernhard Bierschenk
Stimulated by the general philosophical idea oflogical positivism Edgar A. Singer, early in the 1920s made the radical suggestion that behaviour does not have mentalcauses. His thesis, further developed and modified by Arturo Rosenblueth, Norbert Wiener and Julian Bigelow in the early 1940s, has come to be termed behaviouralteleology. The principal motivation for Gerd Sommerhoff was in the beginnings of the 1950s to disjoin the behavioural approach from all notions of mind, mental statesand ment...

[texts]Remarks on the Status of Inference in the Area of Knowledge Representation - Christopher Habel
The concept of inference is one of the global concepts used for the explanation of cognitive processes. There exist mainly two types of characterisation: the logical and the psychological. These different characterisations are based on the difference between inference and rule of inference. Information processing systems can be formalised as inferential systems, i.e. systems with inferential processes...

[texts]Sustainability of Authenticity - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk
Today, design is the concept of fashion. This article is focusing on the notion that there is one ideal design of society. The search for ideal solutions of societal problems has been the habit of utopianism. With the purpose to clarify how a student understands prescription and the design of a perfect society, a discourse on Huxley's "Brave New World" is studied. This implies that the student as text producer is expected to communicate a particular intention and orientation, since certain viewp...

[texts]Towards a Flow Field Model of Language Processing - Inger Bierschenk
The basic idea behind this presentation is that text can only be analysed with reference to somebody or something being its source. This means that there must be a person speaking or writing the text, some perspective by which it is produced, and a speaking or writing mechanism that transports linguistic form and organization into structural information, i.e. text. In principle, there is nothing new in this statement...

[texts]Functional Text Geometry: The Essentials of Perspective Text Analysis - Bernhard Bierschenk
The production of string rotation and pattern dynamics through the generation of text must build on the presence of a reversible rotary motor which has a synthesizing capacity. This is the discovered AaO-mechanism, which has the power to capture synthesis through emerging AaO-rings. Further, the transcription through the Functional Clause (FC) provides the foundation for their differentiation and decides on the trend in the governing messengers...

The article presents an analysis in which intentionality is the key concept in the measurement and representation of consciousness. It is shown that a psychological approach based on the animal mechanism out of which behavioural semantics has developed is wrong. By studying the local and global singularities it was possible to show that efficient transaction with the environment rests on the theoretical formulations that assume the cooperative interaction of a conscious organism with the environ...
